The American Gays and Lesbians Foundation is a political ideology and social movement that advocate for the full acceptance of gays and lesbians in our society. Founding members of this Non Governmental Organization have a long history of campaigning for what is now generally called gays and lesbians rights. Ameriglef is a primary and overarching central organization that represents all gays and lesbians and their interests in the United States of America and all around the world.We are a charitable foundation whose purpose is to fundraise, collect and provide funds for charitable activities which have as their sole or chief purpose the good and betterment of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and allied communities in poor countries especially in Africa.
A commonly stated goal of our Foundation is social equality for gays and lesbians. We also focus on building gays and lesbians communities and work towards liberation for the broader society from biphobia, homophobia, and transphobia. American gays and lesbians foundation is made up of a wide range of political activism and cultural activity, including Donations, Lobbying, Street Marches, Social Groups, Media, Art, and Research.
Whereas Gay and Lesbian in some European countries and Canada are free from discrimination and enjoy equal rights with heterosexual citizens; gays and lesbians in other parts of the World are subject to harassment, humiliation and state-sanctioned discrimination. Their civil rights are violated by prohibition of the same-sex marriage, professional restrictions and social oppression. In many countries homosexuality is persecuted by criminal laws, resulting in long imprisonment or death penalty. Even in countries like the United States which were believed to be rather liberal and progressive, a severe backlash is to be feared.
Great progresses were achieved by the efforts of Gay rights activists groups, including Gay marriage or civil partnership in liberal countries. We recognize these efforts of the numerous international and local Gay and Lesbian organizations, but we also strongly believe that this approach does not offer a relief for the Gays Lesbians Bi – sexual and Transgenders suffering the worst discrimination in large parts of this world especially in Africa.
Taking these facts into account, we believe that there is a great need to establish a place for Gays Lesbians Bi – sexual and Transgenders to find refuge and protection. There should be a refuge for our people to withdraw from homophobic states now and in the future. This concept might include protected settlements within existing countries, as well as a creation of a global land for homosexual people. An additional increase of self-consciousness of the Gays Lesbians Bi – sexual and Transgenders community is expected when Gay and Lesbian people would understand themselves as a “folk” with own cultural identity and traditions, a Gay nation indeed.
The American Gays and Lesbians Foundation mission is to develop viable and proven models of community organization, consumer education and professional training to combat many of these problems. These models have not been adopted and promoted as widely as necessary to make a major impact, in large part because of a lack of material resources. Governments and non-government agencies, including philanthropic organizations, have sometimes been too cautious to fund culturally specific gay and lesbian programs for fear that well-organized and well-resourced ideological opponents to gay and lesbian issues might unfairly characterize them as ‘promoting a lifestyle’.
Ameriglef is here for a change, change in strategies, change in approaches that will keep Gays Lesbians Bi – sexual and Transgenders communities safe and prosperous. Together, Let s go and make change in the lives of Gays Lesbians Bi – sexual and Transgenders all over the world.
